A view of the entire ridge.  You can clearly pick out some land-marks here that are shown close-up in other photos, such as the over-hanging wall with the big crack running down the middle of it.

I think Tyson was putting in an anchor here.  Yes, I was taking a picture, but I had him on a good belay.

I believe this may be the aptly-named Sun-Rise Peak along with Dromedary Peak and a few others.  This, unfortunately, was taken well after the rising of the sun, but when the sun did peak over the mountains to the East, we were high enough on the ridge, and lucky enough, to witness the reason Sun-Rise peak is thus named.  It really was amazing!

Majestic snow-topped spires seen from a vantage point enjoyed only by those who venture the ridge.

An avalanche-aware traveler of the back-country, Tyson evaluated the North-East snow-field of the mountain, which runs from the base almost to the top, as safe to walk down.  Confident outward-facing plunge-stepping was mixed with inward-facing down-climbing until we arrived at a point where glissading was a reasonable and exciting option.

Tyson chilling at the top.  The views all around, (and all the way up to this point), were absolutely breathtaking.

What may have been the crux pitch of the ridge, climbing this in crampons with bulky gloves was interesting, thought-provoking and very enjoyable...when I wasn't scared, if it's fair to say that for at least one moment this was the case.

The colder and icier the better to keep the rocks in place.  Here, the slab pitch of the Pfeiff was an easy ice climb, but a belay wouldn't go in at the top without a bit of simul-climbing to get further up.

Not sure how helpful this is, but this is looking down at what I believe is the short 5.8 start.  You can see a nice clean place to belay, though like the other start, this one offers poor visibility.

This is looking up the ramp start.  Beyond (not visible) is the real meat of the climb.

The flake-like or fin-like feature to the right of where the rope is touching the rock is a fun yet heady lie-back sequence.  I couldn't see a way to protect the move, so it was quite a bit run out. <br /> <br />This photo shows a variation of P1 that probably doesn't end anywhere near where the real P1 belay is supposed to be.

Here's a shot taken from the base of the route.  We've since cleared away the bushes so that the route can be accessed.
